“The sweetest R-help group this side of the Mississippi.”

Welcome to the Davis R Users’ Group (D-RUG)! We are a community of R-Users at UC Davis who support each other in using R for science and research. Our focus is providing a space for beginning and intermediate users to learn from each other.

Join the group listserv here. The mailing list is an online supplement to our in-person work sessions, and a friendly place to post R-related questions.

Weekly Work Sessions

Starting Fall Quarter 2017 (from Sept. 28 onward) our weekly work sessions will be be held THURSDAYS from 10am-12pm in 360 Shields (the Data Science Space on the third floor of Shields Library). Stay tuned on the listserv for updates on presentations/workshops this quarter.

This is the core purpose of DRUG. We have weekly, 2-hour work sessions where people bring their computers to work on their own projects, and ask each other questions as needed. We have no TAs - just mutual support in R, statistics, and related topics. Group members sometimes give short presentations on R methods and best practices or to get feedback on their projects.
